I’m not big on new year’s resolutions, but I love any excuse to stop and try to think strategically (instead of just tactically). It’s basically going back to the old Urgent vs. Important matrix.
I have a few things I want to make sure I focus on in my professional life this year:
- Publish more. I’ve made progress with posting more frequently here and releasing more code. I’m pleased that I’m getting more stuff out there, but I feel like I can do a much better job explaining how to use some of these tools. My team and I build products with depth and I’d like to do a better job detailing some of these nuances.
- Raise the bar. Professionally, there is nothing more important to me than putting out the very best quality products. I’ve got a great team, and I’m excited to see what we can do together this year. I’m going to drive us all to make sure everything we do is the very best.
- Manage myself. Constantly make sure that the things I am working on are the things I should be working on. I need to delegate a little more and be more involved in areas I know are particularly important. I need to reduce my distractions and really focus the important stuff.
2012 will be the 10th anniversary of this site and my involvement with WordPress (originally b2); and it will be the 5th anniversary for Crowd Favorite. I’m looking forward to a great year.
